News On WWE Cruiserweight Division – 10 Talents Signed

The following ten wrestlers are confirmed for WWE’s Cruiserweight Division and the Raw brand: Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Cedric Alexander, Rich Swann, Gran Metalik, Akira Tozawa, Jack Gallagher, Brian Kendrick, Noam Dar and TJ Perkins.

Of those ten names, Gargano, Ciampa and Swann already had NXT deals. This is more of an upgrade for them. As for Perkins, he’ll be our guest on the TJRWrestling Podcast this week. It should be released on Thursday.

This is from a report from PWInsider and it’s also based on the videos that WWE has shown on Raw over the last month so.

According to the report, plan is for the Raw cruiserweights to work Raw TV shows as well as NXT TV tapings and NXT live events. Some of them could be on Raw live events as well.

The finals of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic will air live on WWE Network on Wednesday, September 14. Then on Monday, September 19, the cruiserweights will begin on Raw with those ten names as part of the division.

A couple of notable omissions are Kota Ibushi and Zack Sabre Jr., both of whom were considered favorites to win the tournament. Both guys are still in the tournament, so perhaps one of them will win. Both guys have also said that they had unfinished business elsewhere, so that could be why they aren’t joining the ten others in the cruiserweight division. Then again, WWE could always add them in the future.
